This really was a wonderful event, and an honour to be a part of it.


I thought that the discussion around the broader axes of diversity was very interesting, and we spent some time talking about how some people can be fully included and productive with very minor accommodations (e.g. hearing loss; colour blindness; family-care responsibilities; religious observations; etc).   The starting point is talking to people; and understanding their needs.
